With midterms behind you, you’re probably looking forward to two weeks of relaxing at home, on campus, or at the beach. But wait – what about all that work due when you come back? Managing your time over spring break will help you to feel control for the whole month of April and not slip too far behind. This workshop will help you begin to organize your break and prioritize your academic and co-curricular activities so that you can finish the semester stress-free.  Bring your 2009-2010 Wes Planner and your syllabi. Hosted by the SARN Peer Advisors.

Wednesday, March 3 from 12:10 to 1:00 in Usdan 114.

Do you forget information immediately after reading it? Do you find yourself looking at a page with no idea of what you’ve just read? Do you become disinterested with reading the further into the material you get? Come to the Reading Retention Workshop! The skills and techniques covered in this workshop will help you read and remember readings more efficiently.

Friday, February 26 from 12:10 – 1:00 in Usdan B25 (Multipurpose Room).

Do YOU want to be a SUPER-Sophomore!?

Come to the Super-Sophomore Workshop on Thursday, February 25, 12:15-1:15 p.m. in Albritton 304 (Shapiro Writing Center) to stop slumping and start being super!

Many sophomores have an understandably difficult time transitioning into their second year of college. Peer Advisors have also gone through times where we lost focus on our work, weren’t sure if we were choosing the “right” majors, worried about our professional futures, had too much to juggle with academics, work, activities, and friends, or were just ready to get over that ambivalent hump of our sophomore lives.

HAVE NO FEAR! The workshop will be a panel discussion targeted to sophomores who want to maintain focus and understand the important and crucial decisions that come with being a sophomore. Come listen to, discuss, and receive advice on how to make the most out of your sophomore year: topics to be addressed include major declaration, study abroad, working with faculty, finding internships, and maintaining focus. Dean Phillips will also be there to provide any answers to questions that you may have. SARN Peer Advisors will lead discussion.
Come learn about what matters and about what kind of things you can do to get rid of your “kryptonite”!!

Please COME EARLY and bring your lunch!
